I wonder if Ol' Git knows that Ford offers the F-450 with a regular pickup bed?...

Having said that if you sign up you can abuse us on-line. It will help keep our interest up, in publishing it.



Oi !.... I resemble that remark.

So far, New York, Newport, Rhode Island, Boston - we were just across the river when the officer was murdered. It effects us deeply considering our previous occupation and the fact that I too have been shot by terrorists, but I was lucky.
Then it was Salem and now we are headed up towards Vermont.
Ray...I didnt know you were in law enforcement, unless its military? When you get to Colorado I can take you to my work and if not I will have a patch from my agency waiting for you if your interested.

I still get a kick out of seeing my photos on Holans site and them being linked to different forums. :)

Oi, you lot are being very cruel to my bike. Now just stop it this instant.

You have no idea how sensitive Wallace (my S10) is to all these "fat" jibes.

The fact that he is only getting 170 slow miles to a tank and struggles with triple digit speeds means that he is built for comfort not speed.

Fact is, "Wallace" is really a girl and she's probably none to happy with that name. If you wanted to ride a guy you should have bought a raven.

Looking good Ray! Quite the adventure already. Following the blog looks like good times. Oh and it will be hot before you before you want it to be. You all will see more of this country than this native has. Can't wait to be retired and travel without time restraints. Stay safe

Somehow I think 'TONere' fits it better.

Maybe even 'TONerRay'???

Other than that looks like everyone is enjoying themselves.

Hi Ray ... for fuel economy I reduced the richness on the O2 optimizers but it was too much and the bike ran awfully bad ... had to return to previous levels and also placed the CO settings in ´0´ (zero) ... much better but you cannot get better than 15 km per liter.
Cheers,
Roberto

As the standard max load is 461 lbs including people, maybe you did some upgrades?

Just wondering.
